Saadani National Park

Saadani National Park - a perfect combination of beach & bush adventure

Saadani National Park is the only wildlife park in Tanzania that borders the Indian Ocean. It is one of a kind paradise which offers everything from bush to beach, walking safaris, game drives to boat trips. With an area of approximately 1062 km square, the size of the park is extended to include the former Saadani game reserve, the former Mkwaja ranch area, the Wami River, and the Zaraninge Forest.

If you wish to experience all that Saadani has to offer, and make the most out of your safari and beach vacation, we recommend you visit this unique park during the dry season (June – September).

What safari animals can I see at Saadani National Park?

Both game drives and guided walks will take you into the heart of Saadani and give you a great chance of seeing zebras, buffalo, elephants, warthogs, giraffes, wildebeest, waterbuck, and even the elusive sable antelope. If you’re very lucky (and patient!) you might even be rewarded with the coveted sighting of a lion, leopard or spotted hyena.

Head to the beach for one of Saadani’s most special displays, as this is one of the few remaining breeding sites for green turtles, while dolphins and humpback whales provide their own show in the Ocean beyond. A boat trip on the Wami River takes you up close and personal with hippos, crocodiles and flamingos, for an experience that will really set your heart racing, and bird-watchers can enjoy spotting the many rarely seen migratory birds that are attracted to these shores.
